Not long ago, in association with Yamaha Thailand, the company Zeus Customs built a customised Yamaha XSR 155. This custom bike was unveiled at Thailand Motor Expo. Only 100 units of this limited-edition motorcycle were made available and all of them sold out within the hours of going on sale. A few months back Yamaha Indonesia launched a new colour scheme called the Matte Green Authentic in succession to the Dark Grey version which was launched way before the Matte Green. The colour in which the latest version of XSR155 is launched is Matte Grey.
The XSR 155 is a special motorcycle built and designed by Zeus Customs and was launched in Thailand with a price tag of 91,500 That Baht (Rs 2.05 lakh, direct conversion, approximate). The motorcycle got modified to a bold and looking retro cafe racer. The bike features no mechanical changes but has gone through a number of cosmetic modifications. The popularity of the bike can be calculated from the fact that all the available 100 units sold out in hours of going on sale. The main addition in the modification of the motorcycle is the clip-on handlebars, which is typical of a cafe racer.
Apart from that, the naked look featuring XSR 155 comes with a matte grey paint job and is equipped with a restyled headlamp, smaller fenders, an upswept exhaust, a dual seat with stripes on it, a digital instrument console and a fuel tank with muscular appearance and the Zeus emblem stamped on it. The Yamaha XSR155 stands on 17-inch alloy wheels with disc brakes on both the front and the rear wheels with an anti-lock braking system for easy and improved handling.
In addition to that, the suspension system carries USD forks on the front side and a mono-shock unit on the rear end. The XSR 155 is powered by the same engine as before which is the 155cc, single-cylinder engine that generates 19.3hp of maximum power and 15Nm of top torque. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox. As of now, it is not expected to cross the Indian borders and is also not available at other parts at the global level as all of the 100 units have been sold.
